  1. Tuesday morning one liners: Rumor mill starting to spin

    Nov 29, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries Nets

    If you read one thing on the new NBA CBA, this breakdown by Larry Coon of ESPN should be it. This will make you smarter. Here is a complete list of all 129 free agents that hit the market Dec. 9. It makes almost no sense for the Lakers to make a run at Kris…

  2. Vegas likes the Miami Heat to be your NBA champions

    Nov 29, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    We in no way want to encourage you to gamble while in Las Vegas. There are so many fantastic restaurants — PBT personally recommends RM Seafood and B & B Ristorante — where you know you will get a certain return on your investment in the form of a great meal and atmosphere. But if…

  3. Even David Beckham is ticked about NBA lockout

    Nov 17, 2011, 8:42 AM EDT

    David Beckham at Lakers

    That’s it. Even past-their-prime-but-can’t-retire guys from England are ticked about the NBA lockout. That’s when you know it’s gone too far. David Beckham, a court side seat regular at Staples Center for Lakers games, is angry about the lockout. Becks (I can call him that, we’re tight) was on ESPN radio in Los Angeles and…

  4. Video: Nike sends Lamar Odom back to Queens for a day

    Oct 14, 2011, 9:01 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    Interesting little video from the Nike “Always On” campaign, this one sending Lamar Odom back to Queens for a day, to walk around his old high school and through the old ‘hood. No Khloe and bright lights, just a little old school Odom (and a lot of Nike, of course). Below we bring you that…

  5. Peace out — Artest eliminated from Dancing With The Stars

    Sep 20, 2011, 11:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball player Artest arrives at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles

    For once, the votes of Lakers fans could not vault one of their own up the board. Well, that or they actually saw him dance. Metta World Peace — the dancer and Laker formerly known as Ron Artest — was the first contestant eliminated from Dancing with the Stars during Tuesday night’s elimination show. Which was…

  6. Report: Owners of Cavs, Suns killed potential labor deal

    Sep 15, 2011, 10:19 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    UPDATE 10:19 pm: David Stern called this report “incorrect and fictional” in his press conference following Thursday’s Board of Governor’s meetings. You can take that as the gospel truth or you can take it as Stern covering the backside of his owners. We all know this was the only thing Stern could say, he had…

  7. Lamar Odom in Europe? That’s reality television gold, baby.

    Sep 13, 2011, 11:33 AM EDT

    AXE Music "One Night Only" Concert Series Featuring Weezer

    Apparently Lakers forward and reality television star Lamar Odom has some interest in playing in Europe next season. Also, apparently Odom does not understand how to work the direct message function of twitter. I say that because of this tweet from Odom: @paugasol it’s ya boy @RealLamarOdom ! My dude really want 2 talk 2…

  8. Kobe’s twitter account comes. Then goes. But will be back.

    Sep 8, 2011, 8:47 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Korea Tour 2011

    Kobe Bryant was the talk of twitter Wednesday night. It’s not the first time, from hitting game winners to just being Kobe in post game conversations he’s been the buzz of twitter. But Wednesday it was because he joined twitter. For about three hours. Then the account was shut down after one tweet (“Can you…

  9. One zealous fan gets Kobe Bryant calf tattoo

    Aug 3, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    kobe-bryant-leg-tattoo

    We’ve got Dirk Nowitzki on an a–, a woman with Thunder thighs, a LeBron James calf tattoo, and now…. The Kobe Bryant calf tattoo. You can see the entire thing to the right (via CBSSports Eye on Basketball). My first thought — that’s actually some really impressive work. I most enjoy seeing Kobe in “The…

  10. Sasha Vujacic reportedly close to signing in Turkey

    Jul 13, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Sasha Vujacic

    For Sasha Vujacic, playing in Europe makes sense. And he is close to reaching a deal with Turkish team Anadolu Efes, according to Turkish publications (via Hoopshype and TalkBasket.net) Anadolu Efes is one of the traditional powers of the Turkish league, a regular part of the EuroLeague. It’s a team that has missed getting any…

  11. Lakers don’t expect major changes to defensive scheme under Brown

    Jul 12, 2011, 7:27 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike Brown

    The Los Angeles Times’ Mark Medina recently sat down with Lakers assistant coach Chuck Person to talk about all things Lakers. It’s an interesting interview, and I recommend reading the full piece, but one particularly interesting part of the interview came when Person was asked about how the team will play defense under new head…

  12. Lakers trainer: Kobe’s knee issues “can be dealt with”

    May 27, 2011, 1:32 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant may only be 32 but he has put a lot of miles on his body. He has played more minutes than Magic Johnson, more than Larry Bird, and he’s right there with Michael Jordan (which includes the Wizards years we all try to forget). That has taken its toll on knees that have…

  13. LeBron, Mo Williams say Lakers got good coach

    May 25, 2011, 6:48 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    While Lakers fans are still trying to talk themselves into Mike Brown being a good fit as the Los Angeles coach, his former players are trying to tell them the franchise is in good hands. This is what he said to NBA.com. “If it’s true, when it’s official,” James said, “I think the Lakers got…

  14. Kareem should have a statue… but did you know his movie hit Netflix?

    May 19, 2011, 9:51 PM EDT

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Let’s get this part out of the way first: Yes, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar should have a statue out in front of Staples Center. Nobody who knows the game is disputing that or his place in Lakers or NBA history — including the Lakers, who have told Abdul-Jabbar his statue would be next (but there was no…

  15. Apparently Dunleavy is serious candidate to be next Lakers coach

    May 17, 2011, 10:32 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    This would be a big mistake — not because of his time with the Clippers but purely for stylistic reasons — but apparently the rumors are true. Mike Dunleavy is a serious candidate to become the next head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Kevin Ding of the Orange Country Register. Make no…

  16. Video: Phil Jackson’s final press conference

    May 9, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers head coach Phil Jackson answers questions at a post-game news conference following Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference semi-final basketball playoff against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas

    We’ve talked about Phil Jackson and his legacy. To go with that, we bring you some highlights from Phil Jackson’s last press conference (well, at least until the next book tour) as well as some comments from Kobe about Jackson’s influence. The video is below. If you think he is coming back, watch this again.…

  17. NBA Playoffs: For both Mavericks, Lakers next two games are the real test

    May 6, 2011, 3:35 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    It’s really about the next two games. The Los Angeles Lakers, their dreams of a three-peat — a fourth three-peat for departing coach Phil Jackson — and a spot in the NBA pantheon rests on sweeping the next two games. Which starts with winning one, Game 3, and planting the seed of doubt in the…

  18. Lakers’ Bynum: “We’ve got trust issues right now”

    May 5, 2011, 3:28 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game One

    The Lakers certainly aren’t playing like a championship team. They’re not sounding like one, either. “It’s obvious we have trust issues, and unless we come out and discuss them then nothing is going to change,” center Andrew Bynum said after the game. Trust issues with what? “Individually. Between all 13 of us we’ve got trust…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Who dominates Game 4, Lakers big men or Hornets Chris Paul?

    Apr 24, 2011, 8:08 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    New Orleans had better come out desperate for Game 5, because if they go down 3-1 in this series it is over. The Lakers are not going to be beat three times in a row by the undersized Hornets. Not with Kobe around. The Lakers… who knows how they are going to come out? You…

  20. Lakers, Suns put on a triple-overtime show of shows

    Mar 23, 2011, 3:51 AM EDT

    photos-1

    This was the most entertaining game of the season. Not the best played, there was plenty of slop (Vince Carter’s 2-of-13 from three) and some odd decisions — Lamar Odom, why in the name of Unbreakable are you fouling a three-point shooter up three with a second to go? But there were also amazing plays…

  21. Lakers GM: We’re not moving Andrew Bynum. For anybody.

    Mar 18, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Back at the trade deadline, plenty of Lakers fans were willing to ship Andrew Bynum out the door in a trade. In March, as he has gotten healthy, he has averaged 12.6 points, on 64.2 percent shooting, plus 14.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game. Now, those same Lakers fans would never dream of moving…

  22. GQ calls Lakers fans worst in the NBA

    Mar 17, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    snoop_gal_640

    In case you missed it while checking out the Armani ads, GQ (via The Basketball Jones) went looking for the worst fans in sports — congratulations Philadelphia! — and wouldn’t you know it only one NBA team was able to make this storied list: The Los Angeles Lakers. Congratulations, Angelenos! You are the fairest of America’s…

  23. It’s not always about Kobe, Lakers defense keys win over Thunder

    Feb 27, 2011, 7:20 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Thabo Sefolosha

    The end of the Lakers win over Oklahoma City was the latest Rorschach test for whether or not you think Kobe Bryant is a clutch player. Kobe scored seven of the Lakers final 10 points (all the others were Pau Gasol free throws) and he pushed the Lakers to a 90-87 win on the road.…

  24. How much money could corporate logos on an NBA jersey bring?

    Feb 15, 2011, 12:17 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    Manchester United has an AON logo across the front of their jersey and nobody blinks. Newcastle United has Northern Rock and its not thought twice about (but it was cooler when the Newcastle Brewery sponsored them). Would NBA fans feel the same way? What about a replacing the Lakers logo with Target? Or replace the…

  25. Report: Javaris Crittenton to sign in D-League

    Jan 26, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    D067483045.jpg

    Javaris Crittenton is getting another shot, this time in the D-League. He has to be approved by the league but that is expected to happen, followed by Crittenton being picked up by the Dakota Wizards, according to Scott Schroeder at FanHouse. It’s a road back to the league for a guy that showed a lot…
